Ahead of its new homeport in New Orleans next year, the Disney Wonder is getting a themed lounge based on the city’s iconic French Quarter.

Inspired by the Disney animated feature, “The Princess and the Frog,” Disney Cruise Line said the French Quarter Lounge will “evoke an airy outdoor space in New Orleans,” surrounded by touches of the city’s iconic wrought-iron balconies, classic brick walls and shutter-framed windows. Decorative details include a life-size trolley car and nods to the film, with signs and icons on the walls.

The lounge will feature live music and themed activities, trivia and character encounters, and guests can enjoy live music on the gazebo stage and sip specialty drinks at an updated bar.

Also debuting on the Disney Wonder this fall will be a new space for teens and a redesigned café for adults.

Vibe, a club reserved for teens ages 14-17, will be reimagined with an open layout, a light color palette and industrial metal work. A new coffee bar and updated virtual reality technology will be added as well.

For adults, the newly redesigned Cove Café will serve specialty coffee and tea throughout the day; and wine, cocktails and light bites during the evening. A redesign will transform the look and feel of the café into a local coffee shop, complete with warm and trendy décor. Adult beverage tastings will be available at select times for an additional fee.

The new enhancements debut on the Disney Wonder’s four-night sailing from Vancouver to San Diego on Sept. 30, 2019. For the first time, the Disney Wonder will call New Orleans home in 2020, with Caribbean and Bahamian itineraries departing from this new homeport beginning Feb. 7.
